Dieting with Microbes: Using Probiotics for Weight Loss - My Experience
My experience describing how I lost weight with probiotics, and the theories behind it. "Normal" gut bacteria appear to metabolise fat, and extract calories from food, in a “historically correct” fashion, with the result that the vast majority of people with normal gut bacteria would be a healthy weight without having to diet or engage in any real food intake control. Historically, weight gain and obesity have only been a problem for a small minority of people. Since antibiotics - and possibly the contraceptive pill - started being widely used, being overweight has become a problem for the vast majority of most populations. Antibiotics, and potentially the contraceptive pill, both result in damaged gut flora. Abnormal gut bacteria process fats and extract calories from food in an inappropriate way, that makes slow but eventual obesity more-or-less just a matter of time. Unless of course these people work hard to restrict their food intake. Or unless they correct their gut flora to that which the human race has grown-up with, probably since life on earth began. Which is where some probiotic bacteria, mainly it seems Lactobacillus types, come in. All of the theories and potential techniques around the use of probiotics - and prebiotics in weight-loss are still essentially experimental and unproven. And you should read everything I post with that in mind. I have experimented with quite a few different probiotic bacteria for weight-loss effects, and have found that there are some that actually result in weight-gain: Streptococcus Thermophilus is the most common - it is found in many shop-bought yogurts.

Tivourt: A New Probiotic Yogurt that can be Made at Home
"Diarrhea kills five times. as many kids as AIDS,“. said John Oldfield, executive vice president of Water Advocates..." This is a brand new probiotic yogurt drink that uses an anti-diarrhoeal probiotic yeast. Hopefully, poorer, so-called 'third-world' countries, may be able to use this yeast-based yogurt-drink to avert needless diarrhea-related deaths.

Cheap Probiotics: Make you own probiotic yogurts from commercial probiotic pills, capsules and drinks, for a fraction of the price... This method also allows you to "megadose" with probiotics - which in my experience clears the gut of bad bacteria far more rapidly.
